Is it Time to Remodel Your Master Bathroom?
For most homeowners, the master bathroom is an extension of their own bedroom. You usually start and end your daily routine in this room, and if you find yourself unable to do so smoothly, it may be time for a remodel.
Beyond normal wear and tear on an active room in your home, there are a number of indicators it’s time to start your bathroom remodel project sooner rather than later. Below we take a closer look at 3 of the most common signs your master bathroom needs a serious makeover:
1. Your Bathroom Doesn’t Have Enough Storage Space
Is it impossible to find room for your daily essentials in your current master bathroom? If you find yourself compromising on what to put where, or how to best store something inconspicuously, it is time for an update.
Having adequate space for easy access to the items you use in your daily routine is important. It’s how you smoothly jumpstart your day or transition into rest mode at the end of it.
Clever Storage Options for Everyday Items:
- Above-Counter Cabinets create easy access to the items you use most often
- A Built in Vanity will dedicate space for hair and make-up
- Recessed Shower Shelving reduces clutter and saves on space
Even better is having enough cabinets and aesthetically-pleasing storage space to keep extra bathroom supplies on hand (but out of the way).
Creative Ways to Store Bathroom Supplies:
- A Low Recessed Cabinet allows you to house your cleaning products out of site
- Hidden Laundry Hampers make laundry day easier for everyone
- Hide a Cabinet behind a Mirror for a dual purpose fixture
Our team of designers and builders will work with you to create a beautiful space that is ideal for your daily needs.
2. Outdated Bathroom Fixtures are Costing You Money
Many homeowners find that outdated fixtures, like toilets and lighting, are driving their water and energy bills up. Updating these inefficient features will save you money in the long-run.
Water efficient toilets use as little as 2 gallons of water per flush, while the average toilet uses 5 gallons to flush. Similarly a high efficiency shower head can save on water while delivering the ideal amount of water pressure.
LED light bulbs only use 25%–30% of the amount of energy as your regular light bulbs and last for years. You can also allow more natural light into your bathroom with the addition of a window. This will eliminate the need for artificial light during the day and will also improve ventilation.
When you choose to go green, not only will you be saving money, you will also be doing your part to conserve natural resources.
3. The Layout of Your Bathroom Is Just Not Practical
Every bathroom is going to have some staple features, like a toilet and a sink, but do you really need that bathtub that never gets used? Imagine the benefits of adding another sink to the room, or a bidet. The addition of a wall or a door allows for more privacy, so more than one person can use the room at once.
Combine functionality and design with these updates:
- Adding a sliding pocket door saves space while creating privacy
- Consider opting for a larger luxury shower over a tub
- Update your ventilation system or add a fan to properly remove moisture from the room
The options are endless and anything is possible when it comes to remodeling your master bathroom. Our team at DRF Builders want to ensure you get the most out of every room in your home by infusing utility and luxury.
